Wrong time on incoming texts


Badge

After the last OTA system update a few days ago, all my incoming texts have the wrong time, it’s GMT instead of using my time zone.  The phone time is correct, the time zone is correct, and my outgoing messages have the correct time, only the incoming texts are wrong.  Any ideas?  Android 12

Try a different SMS app and then you can find out if it's the os or the app.

@russff99 mine is doing the same thing, my incoming text messages since the update are showing 7 hours ahead. And it all started after the update. 

I restarted my phone and now the text messages are coming in correctly. 

It looks to me like T-Mobile has one of their SMS servers set to UTC. My wife & I are randomly getting messages that are 7 hours off which is GMT (UTC) but not daylight savings time. Some are correct, some are not. Which tells me they have at least one server set to UTC.

It wouldn’t be a big deal, except that it puts new messages up before previous messages that have the correct time.

 

Any way we can get you folks at T-Mobile to fix this? Easy fix guys.

and the above mentioned restart of the phone or network reset has not fixed it?

Mine just started doing this yesterday. I cleared the cache and restarted the phone with no luck 

If anyone gets a solution, let me know. It's driving my husband crazy 

Has anyone heard anything from T-Mobile?  I noticed this about 2 weeks ago and its driving me crazy.

Mine are still doing this as of last night on some incoming texts. Deleted ALL my texts, restarted my phone several times, and it still has not resolved the issue. 

Since the last update. My phone has the wrong date. Messages are showing 12/31/1969. This is random on incoming messages, but has happened on a daily basis. Have not discovered a solution. Anyone else experience this?

I have had same problem since last update but only Android phones are showing incorrect message times. Frustrating!!!!

I just observed the problem this morning, and only on texts from someone in a different (3 hours ahead) time zone.  Tried a restart, but that hasn’t fixed it.  Any other ideas?  (I hate clearing cache -- it’s usually a pain, and all it does is get rid of passwords without solving the problem.)

Samsung Galaxy S22 here - Been having these issues recently as well. Restarted my phone, cleared cache, only seems to be a temporary fix.

Ty, restarting my phone fixed this issue for me

A MI NO ME RECONOCE EL 5G DESPUES DE LA ACTUALIZACION. 

Following. My incoming texts are all 7 hours ahead. 

Started having same issue all of a sudden. 

Restart didn't work so I turned the phone off and turned it on and it seems to have fixed the issue.
